Liverpool's Landlord Licensing Scheme
Apply for a Landlord Licence
Licences are not transferable. If the licence holder needs to be changed, a new application must be made and paid for. As licences run for a maximum of five years, property owners should give careful consideration to the person designated as licence holder.
Apply for a 'fit and proper person'
First, you will need to apply for a 'fit and proper person' check which costs £50. This is Part 1 of the application process.
Once this check has been paid for and completed, you'll be asked to submit individual property details along with the fee for each licence. This is Part 2 of the application process.
Please contact us if you'd like a paper application form and we'll email it to you.
Already have a 'fit and proper person' check?
If you already have a reference number for your fit and proper person check, you may use the online form below to apply for a property licence.
Please note: A separate licence application must be submitted for each property you wish to licence.
Each application must be made with the full fee - we cannot process applications without a payment. Please make a note of the 'PL' reference number you are given for each application you submit.
